With an increasing focus on Simulation-Based Education (SBE) in health care, this new book is a step-by-step guide to becoming an effective SBE educator.

Simulation-Based Education provides practical advice for undergraduate and postgraduate educators on how to plan and deliver SBE across a range of health and social care disciplines. It covers the planning, delivery and evaluation of SBE, hints and tips for success, and interactive immersive simulation in a variety of education settings.

Written by SBE specialists from across the healthcare disciplines, the book uses a ‘workshop’ approach that encourages readers to evaluate their current practice and apply new knowledge to develop their strengths, making it invaluable for the entire SBE team.
